Milan Popadich, CFA, MBA

Associate Portfolio Manager, Manulife Securities Incorporated
Life Insurance Advisor, Manulife Securities Insurance Inc. 


Milan has spent the past decade helping individuals and their families develop a better financial strategy. He started his work career in the late 1980’s with a consulting firm in the financial services industry, and earned the globally recognized Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter in 1994. In the early 1990’s he moved to a subsidiary of Thomson Reuters to develop an electronic network which distributed research and data to Canada’s largest fund managers, teaching them how to leverage technology for making better informed investment decisions. His experience with Canada’s largest pension funds, as well as being through many market cycles, has left him well equipped to help his clients develop a sound strategy for growing their wealth, and an awareness of the importance of protecting wealth and developing prudent and tax-efficient income and estate planning strategy.

Milan enjoys building close relationship with his clients. His approach is a natural extension from his life-long passion for sports, particularly track & field, where he was a top-ranked decathlete and hurdler in the early 1980's, winning a number of national titles. Now as a financial coach, he helps clients set realistic goals, determine a plan for achievement, and executing that plan. 

Milan remains active today with his three daughters and spouse, participating in alpine ski racing, cycling, tennis, and golf. While he spends most weekdays in Toronto or Sudbury, he can often be found in Collingwood, enjoying activities the region offers.
